The College of Staten Island women’s volleyball squad was back in action tonight, and got back on the winning track, recording a 3-0 conference win over John Jay College in a match played in Manhattan. CSI took the individual games, 25-13, 25-9, and 28-26. The win ends CSI’s losing skid at three games, lifting the team to 2-6 overall and 2-2 in CUNYAC play, while the Bloodhounds dipped to 1-5, 1-3, respectively.
CSI was sharp from the outset, and their second game in particular saw them place 10 kills next to no errors, good for a season-best .529 attack percentage. John Jay, meanwhile, struggled over the first two stanzas, recording only eight total kills next to 13 total errors.
Pola Poskrobko led the way for CSI, pacing the Dolphins with 10 total kills on 21 attempts, adding a game-high four service aces. Monica Cencepcion also turned in a quality showing, recording seven kills next to just three errors, adding seven digs. Jennifer Samuel recorded 25 assists in the match, while Jean Marie Lewandowki paced the Dolphins defensively with 13 digs. CSI also spread out 14 service aces in the match, out-doing the Bloodhounds, who only had four.
Martina Hot led the way for the Bloodhounds with seven kills on 29 attempts, adding three of her team’s four aces and six digs.
CSI will return to action a week from tonight when they host St. Joseph’s College of Brooklyn for a 7pm match at the Sports & Recreation Center.
